Escape the modern world…
Messinia holidays are an ideal escape from the fast paced modern world, offering traditional unspoilt Greek surroundings relatively unheard of compared to the usual popular resorts in Greece. Relaxation is the name of the game here, with beautiful quiet beaches, pine covered mountain areas and traditional villages, any holidaymaker looking to get away from it all would do a lot worse than taking a trip to Messinia.
If you are into hiking and exploring, there are plenty of mountain walks and countryside trails to sink your teeth into, with forests teeming with wildlife ideal for whiling away the hours on a relaxing trek. Of course, if you are here to top up your tan, beaches are in abundance as well, offering crystal clear waters and secluded spots to soak up the sun.
The multitude of traditional towns and villages in and around the Messinia area have dozens of Greek tavernas and restaurants, ensuring you will never be too far from somewhere offering top quality food, ranging from typical Greek fare to the likes of Italian and other continental cuisine. Nightlife is low-key and laid back – definitely more suited to families and couples, with relaxing café bars in abundance – you’ll be hard pushed to find a garish nightclub and the associated din on a holiday to Messinia.
